You should be able to use the Performance Analysis tools that come with Visual Studio.NET to time all your code.  I believe there are differences in the tool, depending on the IDE version that you are using.

In the absence of a more fitting answer, you could include a stopwatch in your code and check the elapsed time once it finishes:
System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch clocker = new System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch();

// Run code

TimeSpan elapsed1 = clocker.Elapsed;
// --OR--
long elapsed2 = clocker.ElapsedMilliseconds;
// --OR--
long elapsed3 = clocker.ElapsedTicks;

DateTime startTime = DateTime.Now;
//Execute Code Here
long executionTicks = DateTime.Now.Ticks - startTime.Ticks;
Console.WriteLine("Code executed in {0} ticks.", executionTicks);

Open in new window

You could modify the code to also count seconds or milliseconds or any other metric you want.
